A print designed as a response to the International Women’s Day, it examines how our perception of women has been shaped by the everyday language. It displays a selection of traditional Chinese words with “woman” 女 used as a radical 部首, almost instantly one can notice how family responsibilities, societal roles and beauty are disproportionately defined to be feminine. In addition to challenging such preconceptions, this list also encourages us to reflect how far we have grown beyond these man-made limits.
